A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra. Set in Chechnya, the novel spans the time period from 1994-2004, jumping back and forth between characters and time frames. In this way, we come to learn the stories of the main characters, the horrors they have experienced, the dreams they still hold on to. I loved how the author provided glimpses into the futures and pasts of minor characters who cross the paths of the main characters. Loved it!

Still one of the best novels in American literature.

Something I've Been Meaning to Tell You: 13 short stories by Alice Munro

I absolutely LOVED this book. That said, I would not recommend it to anyone, just decide for yourself. I'm not sure who can handle what and the first half of this story was pretty darn disturbing. It's fiction about a 32 year old woman who is abducted and held captive for a year. The story is actually her telling it to her therapist. The second half is after she's escaped and trying to move on with her life and find out the identity of who took her. It was excellent, but again, disturbing.

Finn: A Novel. Loved the recreation of Huck Finn's father in this novel. He does a masterful job of creating a despicable character and then weaving into his story the scene from Mark Twain's novel. Reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy's "Suttree" character.
